INCREDIBLE

The content on this podcast is so incredible you feel inspired after listening to each and every episode.
The guest on the podcast are world class and the questions Cam and Corey ask allow for the listeners to gain incredible insight into how each individual became successful.
Everyday I check to see if they have brought out a new episode. Even though they normally haven’t I end up listening to a previous episode and gain an extra bit of information each time. The only thing this podcast is missing is an episode with Adam Scott. Keep up the great work
